3.9 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

vmware/nsx — version 0.1.0 Sep 15th 2016



This module uses rest client to interact with the NSX API.


$ puppet module install vmware/nsx


This module uses Puppet Transport resources like our other modules, such as vmware-vcenter. The trasnport resource stores the conenction information for the rest client.

# The name of the transport is referenced by other resource:
transport { 'nsx':
  username => 'admin',
  password => 'vmware',
  server   => 'nsx.local',

All NSX resources use the transport metaparameter to specify the NSX Manager where the resource exists.

nsx_ssoconfig { \"config_sso\": ensure => present, sso_lookup_service_url => $sso_url, sso_admin_username => $sso_username, sso_admin_userpassword => $sso_password, sso_lookup_service_thumbprint => $sso_thumbprint, transport => Transport["nsx"], }

See tests folder for additional examples.
